A bit late already for a July overview, but the reason why is explained in the first bullet point already. Since this is what July brought me:
- 3 weeks in Normandy. Away from everything and everyone, in the woods, in between little villages. I’ll write a more elaborate post on that later on.
- 3 weeks of no internet and nearly no television. And that felt so good, that I postponed the going online a bit longer when we got back home. As for television, we don’t have cable at home anymore, to avoid just watching whatever is on. But we are addicted to quite a number of shows and we do tend to binge watch several episodes in a row. So our couch potato level can be rather high still. Not that I used all that no-watching time in Normandy to exercise. No, I was still a couch potato, but this time with a book.
- 4 books. I know that does not sound that impressive, but hey, 3 of those counted at least 800 pages. So yeah, I’m pretty proud of those 4 books.
- 3 weeks with no makeup. After some kind of allergic reaction on my eyes before we left on holiday (and of which I still don’t know what the cause was), my skin was grateful. If I would have gone 3 weeks without coffee and cookies, my skin would most likely have been even more grateful, but alas. Less coffee (and that while I’m actually a tea person) and less cookies, brings me seamless to the next topic.
- Resolutions. Inspired by the Flow holiday box. So yeah, I’m going to better my life. Again.
- A Dutch-speaking satnav trying to show us the way in France. Hilarious! Well, sometimes. Could be quite frustrating as well.
- 1 lucky clover.
- Seeds. Every piece of fruit I had was thoroughly dissected. And in between I also drew up a new plan for the vegetable garden. Taking into account rotation and everything. It’s only half finished, though. But if I get too organised, I scare myself.
- One and a half sock. I needed a new knitting project, and it need to be compact. Socks it was.
- When we came back home: 1 very red tomato, and 1 pumpkin plant that took over our facade garden and that’s already supporting a pumpkin.
So, how did your July go? Lazy, or very intensive? At home, or far away?
